NATALE CEREGHINO
Prominent in the Italian citizenship of San Francisco, and member of a pioneer family of this state, Natale Cereghino is known as one of the most substantial and popular merchants of North Beach, with his City of Rome Market situated at 1310 Grant street. He was born in San Francisco on Christmas day in the year 1878, and is a son of the late Louis and Madaline (Cereghino) Cereghino.

Louis Cereghino, a native of Italy, came to California by way of the Isthmus of Panama in 1863, and became a well known business man of San Francisco. He died in 1885. His widow, who arrived in California in an early day, survived him until 1926. Six children were born to their marriage, of whom four are now living.

Natale Cereghino studied in the grammar schools, but when a very young lad found it necessary to assist in the support of the family. He was not afraid of work, however, and engaged in carrying newspapers and in whatever sort of activity he could find to make money. When he reached his eighteenth year, he started to learn the butcher business, and a year later established himself in business for himself, which he has continued very successfully throughout the intervening period, covering a third of a century. He is among the oldest meat dealers in point of service in North Beach.

Mr. Cereghino was married to Miss Asunta Delucchi, who was born in San Francisco, and is a daughter of Angelo Delucchi. They have become the parents of four children, as follows: Edward, who is a draftsman; Norma; Umber, who died at the age of seventeen years; and Harold.

In local and club affairs of San Francisco, Mr. Cereghino is one of the Italian citizenship. He is a republican in his political faith. He belongs to the Speranza Lodge of the Masons, to the San Francisco Parlor of the Native Sons of the Golden West, the Knights of Pythias, the Druids, and the Italian Workmen He was one of the organizers of the Columbus Civic Club, an Italian organization with now over a thousand members, and is a director in the Property Owners Club. Outdoor life has appealed mostly to Mr. Cereghino as a form of recreation.
